Paul George has no minutes restriction tonight

After Paul George was medically cleared to play for the Indiana Pacers in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Finals tonight, the next question became how many minutes he would be able to give the team.

 

According to Candace Buckner of the Indianapolis Star, it could be a lot of them, as Paul George has no minutes restriction tonight.

This is great news for both George and the Pacers. No one wants to see a player suffer through an injury–especially a concussion–so it’s good to hear that George is healthy and doing well.

As for the Pacers, their chances of defeating the Heat just got a huge boost with this news. George is the team’s best player, and trying to replace his scoring punch would be a tough task.

Game 3 starts at the bottom of the hour on ESPN, so tune in to check out how George is able to bounce back from his injury, and the Pacers as a team are able to bounce back from their Game 2 defeat.

If Game 2 was any indication, this figures to be a tough, hard-fought game–regardless of how healthy George is.
